The Friday Night Academy is Back (9/13/13): Rev. Andrew Compton will present a lecture "Touring Old Testament Jerusalem." Here's a preview.
Both in Middle Eastern politics and in the three major monotheistic religions, the city of Jerusalem plays a prominent role. Politically, it is contested territory in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Religiously, it is “The Holy City,” a sacred site for many Jews, Muslims and Christians. But what do we actually know about the city? What are its prominent geographical traits? What are its significant architectural features? In this presentation, R. Andrew Compton leads a tour through part of Jerusalem’s history, showing how geography and archaeology illuminate the Bible's portrait of the city. He tells the story of the city down to the time of the Babylonian exile, illustrating its history and archaeology with maps and pictures, in order to allow the Old Testament's focus on Jerusalem to be more vividly understood.
Watch for my upcoming series "In the Land of Nod" (on the two kingdoms), and for a series "Responding to Islam," by Ken Samples.
